There will be a Castlevania concert at the Stockholm Concert Hall the 19th of February 2010. A very special guest artist will attend: Michiru Yamane. She will perform on several pieces including one exclusive piece from Symphony of the Night that she will arrange by herself. The music will be performed by The Stockholm Youth Symphony Orchestra, a rock band, singers and The Grand Organ. The whole concept seems to be somewhat like the Final Fantasy VI concert that was held in Tokyo some months ago.

Tickets will be available October 30 and the cost is between 300-400 SEK.

So, someone going to Sweden for this concert?
Count me in, though I already live there.

Is a certain Daniel K going.......not if they only play Order of Ecclesia music I suspect

LOL. Nah, even though its far from my favourite Castlevania score, I'd love to hear some of the pieces from Order of Ecclesia live. I'm tempted to go, but I'm also going to Russia sometime in February, so we'll see if I can catch it or not.

This is good news, but makes me wonder, why has our little nook of the world been so blessed with VGM concerts? The US and the bigger EU countries I can understand, and Japan of course goes without saying, but Sweden? Doesn't make sense. But its a positive "doesn't make sense". smile

what sucks is that nobody capture those concerts, and make them available on dvd, I suspect they would sell decently.

Dais Oct 28, 2009

The teaser confuses me. That isn't a Castlevania theme, is it?

sweden always had great taste in music as far as i can tell, they always appeared like a music nation to me, so it doesn't surprise me that much.

Hey, knock it off, I like ABBA ;_; I have to admit, though, that I don't listen to them as much as I used to. Too much else to listen to nowadays. Anyway, to the main point:

Well, I'm not going to complain the least bit. It's significantly easier to come to Sweden than it was to go to Germany. I'm definitely in, and I have a funny feeling that there will be quite a number of us crazy Finns coming as always.

Selling DVDs would require additional licensing permissions from the game company, and their terms/restrictions and fees.   For the most part, these additional hassles and costs tend to outweigh any potential benefit, so that's why people don't do it.

I still can't believe that there is going to be a concert dedicated to CastleVania. They better do Theme of Simon on the organ. That song begs to be done.

I hope the arrangements they play are considerably better than the ones from PLAY! I wasn't very impressed by their performances whatsoever.

Maybe CV64 will get some love too....

Seems like the program has been revealed officially http://www.castlevaniaconcert.com/ and a making of video with some (I assume early) snippets of footage from rehearsal sessions.
Lots of SOTN, some Bloodlines and classic themes (Simon theme, Beginning, etc).

Is anyone else planning to go? I'm actually considering to, that music list is tempting, but I thought it'd be interesting to know how are people looking forward to it (it's an expensive trip!).

Smeg Jan 23, 2010

That's a fine program list, and I would love to see Sweden. I don't think I know anyone crazy enough to go with me though sad

The concert is coming up quite soon now. Is everyone excited? I recently interviewed the team of the event here and it seems like they've got a lot planned in terms of visuals, arrangements, and special guests. Lots of surprises planned, but seems like they won't be revealed till the evening. Although the confirmation Yamane is doing a special arrangement is a nice one.

Smeg Feb 8, 2010

Cool interview, but typos abound! Run 'er through a spellcheck, dude.

Jousto Feb 9, 2010

I think it would be quite interesting to have a small STC meet-up before or after the concert if there are more of you guys showing up. A few of us Finnish more-or-less regulars willl be there, myself included. It could be fun.

Cogo Feb 10, 2010

It will as always be nice to meet all the crazy guys from Finland wink But it would of course also be fun to meet anyone else from this forum.

So who is Kinuyo Yamashita ?  I saw the video of her message to the fans on the site...she says she is the composer for 'vampire killer', is that right?  (i.e. the original theme??)

Someone should at least capture an audience recording of this show....so that people who cannot make it to Stockholm can at least get a sample of the show...perhaps they will film it

Herrkotowski Feb 10, 2010

Kinuyo Yamashita composed most of the original Castlevania. She also composed the Megaman X3 soundtrack.

By original Castlevania, you mean the NES version?  Does that include part II or III

Very interesting, now I have to check out Megaman X3 ST...

Herrkotowski Feb 11, 2010

By that, I do mean the very first Castlevania game for the NES. That was the only one she worked on.

Sounds like a great idea. Count me in, as I'll also be attending.
Only a couple of days left. smile

Laif Feb 22, 2010

Sooo? How was it? Quite a dream setlist, wished I was there. I saw Yamane play the Wood Carving Partita in Leipzig 3 years ago. It was amazing, but this Stockholm concert...it probably won't ever get any better than this for a SotN fan.
